England and Austria the lynchpins of Tuesday’s Euro acca
Tuesday’s round of fixtures brings this international break to an end and as the players bid to get their country to Euro 2016 this evening, we’re backing five sides to do their nations proud.
Our 24/1 five-fold acca may seem ambitious at first, but in the end we all know you have to be in it to win it.
What’s more there is the added insurance that if one of these sides in your five-team-plus acca for the Euro qualifiers let you down, a free bet up to the value of your stake will be yours* (click here for T&Cs).
For us it’s all about one Home Nation doing the business and a shock in store for Zlatan.
England to beat Switzerland @ 8/11
We’ve got to kick our five-fold off with a patriotic punt on Roy’s boys continuing their winning ways at Wembley.
England have won their last six at Wembley, scoring 17 times and conceding just once in the process and it’s hard to see that run ending against the Swiss.
Switzerland have only beaten the Three Lions once in 21 head-to-heads, and haven’t been the most convincing on the road of late.
Aside from the expected win against San Marino, a tight win against Lithuania, a draw against Poland and a defeat to Slovenia is not the sort of form that will see them leave London with any points.
Belarus to beat Luxembourg @ 1/3
While Belarus are slightly out of form, with Luxembourg conceding at least three goals in six of their last eight away matches, the hosts look a fair price to bounce back here.
Defeats against Spain, Russia and Ukraine are far from disgraces, and if repeating their victory against Mexico last November Aleksandr Khatskevich’s side should prove too much.
A late equaliser saved a point for Luxembourg in the reverse fixture and they are capable of a shock, but with no back-to-back victories in 20 years it could be a case of playing for, and ultimately failing to achieve, a draw.
Montenegro to beat Moldova @ 20/21
Moldova have proved to be the Group G whipping boys somewhat in this qualification campaign, picking up just two points from their seven games.
Their opponents here got that off to a start with a 2-0 victory 12 months ago to the day, and will need a repeat performance if they are to continue their pursuit for a place at the tournament in France.
Their win over Liechtenstein was their first victory since then having been taking on more illustrious opponents prior to that and can double up in Chisinau.
Slovenia to beat Estonia @ 4/7
Looking at Slovenia’s recent form of three straight defeats it would be easy to instantly oppose them against four-timer chasing Estonia, but there’s more to it than that.
The hosts’ last two defeats have come at the hands of England and Switzerland, throwing away leads on both occasions.
The Estonians meanwhile have picked up wins against struggling nations Finland, San Marino and Lithuania.
Victory would keep Slovenia’s qualification hopes alive, and are picked to do so.
Austria to beat Sweden @ 13/5
Six competitive wins on the bounce, including a double against a strong Russian outfit, puts Austria on the verge of sealing their place in the tournament next summer.
They look outstanding value to go further than the point they need and bag a win against Sweden in Solna.
Zlatan and Co. slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Russia on Saturday and could be in a vulnerable position as they prepare for this crucial fixture.
With the visitors winning two of their last three visits to the Scandinavian nation, and drawing the other, we’re backing Marcel Koller’s side to round-off our acca in style.
